No Conceal Carry for Elected Officials?

ILLINOIS (WIFR)-- An Illinois House Representative wants to strip elected officials of concealed carry rights that don’t apply to regular citizens. Rep. John Cabello wants to pass legislation, which would prohibit mayors, aldermen, and deputy marshals from carrying a concealed firearm. In communities where citizens are denied that right, Cabello says it’s only fair that elected officials be on the same playing level as the people they represent. The bill has passed a House committee and now moves to the full House. Illinois has to have a conceal carry law in place by June.
